Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 141 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Otterbox Defender too brittle While it is well made, the inner case material is too hard/brittle. It tends to break instead of bending. The ipod has ports close together so the separators break off leaving the bottom unsecured. While advertised as dust resistant, it isn't very tight that way. It will keep pocket lint out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT. I simply adore Otterbox cases. I have only gone through 2 cases in a period of 5 years for 2 different ipods, which is pretty great! I cannot express how wonderful these cases are. I have thrown my ipod across the street several times (dont ask why) and it withstands it perfectly! Its fun to show off every once in a while ;D but seriously, you will not regret buying these cases. I knew right away that an Otterbox was the first thing I needed to buy when I purchased my new iPod! Thank you Otterbox!! July 19, 2014

Camera Covers?

Q: 
Is there a thin layer of plastic to protect the front and rear cameras just like the apple logo? Sorry to ask but I can't really tell in the pictures and none of the reviews speak to it.

There is no plastic over the lens, but the hard plastic case is thick and raised enough around the lens to give them reasonable protection from scratches.

A: 
No protection for the cameras. If there was a plastic layer like there is over the screen or the Apple logo, then it would possibly interfere with picture clarity, focusing ability and possibly render the microphone useless. I think this case is more for shock & scratch protection and water resistance. I have used it with wet hands and in the rain and feel confident that my device was protected. But due to that fact that there is also openings for the speaker and also charging and headphone ports, it is not water-tight.

Yes, but only with Apple's included cable. The opening in the case DOSE restrict you from using it in a docking station. The hole is too thick and narrow. Many after-market charging cables do not fit.

Most likely, no. Your average docking station is formed to fit the iPod snug so it does not move and damage the device. This case adds size to the iPod.

YES! I searched extensively , read a lot of specs and reviews before I made a choice.
I purchased the '12 SOUTH ' brand "Highrise for iphone". It is very stable , well constructed and is easily adjustable for both depth and thickness of device + case.
You assemble the stand (machine screws and allen wrench included. Very easy)
You custom set the back for the depth of your device in its case.
You are provided 3 different size clips that securely hold the end of your 'lightening' charging cable to the proper height to reach through your case and snug into your device.
You will need to supply your own 'lightening ' cable.
Well made of sturdy aluminum. Securely docks and charges your device , through the case , while looking
quite smart! Highly recommended!

If you mean is it able to go on a docking station with the case on, it's most likely not. The bottom of the case goes over quite a bit and probably won't fit on. Depends on the docking station I think.

A: 
No belt clip is included for the IPod Touch 5G. There is a wrist strap if you choose to use it. There is a screen protector built into the inner case, but the hard case you are describing only comes with the belt clip. However the built-in otterbox screen protector works great and there is enough silicone around the edges to protect your IPod Touch. Its the only "box" I would use on any device -- and I have three devices that all are protected by otterbox defender series.

No, unlike the OtterBox cases for the iPhone and iPad, the iPod touch cases do not come with a belt clip. The case does not have the necessary snaps for a belt clip either, they are only made to carry around in your pocket.
